The three malls managed by the Suria KLCC Group are set to transport shoppers to the coastal fishing villages of the East Coast this Raya season.
With the first and second days of Hari Raya falling on 22 and 23 April 2023, Suria KLCC is running its Hari Raya campaign starting 24 March until 1 May 2023.
This year’s decorations may bring back memories for some, while for others, an appreciation of the simple pleasures found in a traditional kampung nelayan (fishing village).
The Centre Court is the hub of the festivities, featuring a traditional wooden rumah kampung (village house) that immerses visitors in the vibrant atmosphere of a Malaysian village. Elevated on stilts with expansive windows, the village houses are set amidst a picturesque landscape dotted with coconut trees.
An interactive wayang kulit gives shoppers a hands-on experience of moving and controlling the shadow puppets. Visitors get to know what it’s like to be behind the scenes of the Malay traditional art of storytelling. Apart from that, visitors can have a go at nostalgic childhood games such as teng teng (hopscotch), gasing (spinning top) and congkak at the Centre Court.
Festive songs wafting through the air serve to enhance shoppers’ Hari Raya celebratory mood. Those who are light on their feet can dance along to cultural dances that will be performed at the Centre Court and Ramlee Mall, throughout the Raya campaign period.
A photo booth is also available for shoppers to take festive photos with loved ones. The complimentary photo print-outs with e-copies let shoppers commemorate their wonderful experience shopping at Suria KLCC.
At Esplanade KLCC, the 50-ft Pelita Replica that made it into the Malaysia Book of Records in 2022 as the Largest Pelita Replica will make a comeback this year to be showcased along with other traditional Hari Raya elements.
“Being a prominent mall in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, this is our way of bringing Malay culture, traditions and stories to the diverse people who visit Suria KLCC from around Malaysia and around the world each year during Ramadhan and Hari Raya.
“As we continue to create festive experiences to delight visitors, we hope this Raya season brings new-found appreciation for Malaysia’s rich cultural heritage,” said Andrew Brien, Executive Director and CEO of Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd.
The excellent shopping experience at Suria KLCC is made even better with its rewards and savings this Raya season. From 30 March until 24 April, shoppers who spend RM1,000 in two receipts at any speciality stores will receive RM100 worth of Suria KLCC Shopping e-Vouchers (SKLCC e-Vouchers) and a set of exclusive Suria KLCC Raya Packets.
That’s not all! To add to the excitement, the first 100 shoppers who purchase RM1,000 worth of SKLCC e-Vouchers during this festive season campaign will receive an additional RM100 worth of e-Vouchers.
Throughout Ramadan, the Concierge Team will hand out ‘kurma’ (dates) in preparation for shoppers to break their fast.
In an ongoing initiative of the Mental Health Awareness programme, Suria KLCC has pledged to support NGO(s) championing mental health through monetary sales of the Suria Ribbon Pin. The ribbon pin can be purchased from the Concierge at RM10 per pin.
